July 11 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The amazing Grisha Stewart will be presenting an fabulous evening talk on small dogs
If you have a small dog, work or walk small dogs then this is one not to be missed!!

Small dogs are awesome and amazing to live with. There are some specific challenges that people face when they care for small dogs, including bias from other people, safety issues, aggression, and training problems. This seminar discusses empowerment and positive dog training that will be helpful for both regular pet folks and professional trainers.

* Training and safety challenges for small dogs
* Reading body language
* Reinforcement strategies
